    Looking for a Sci-Fi RPG

    The Ashen Stars book using the Gumshoe system might be worth looking at. Characters have roles for both ship-based encounters and ground adventures that can be more or less independent. Settingwise it's a bit different but could be adapted to your scenario pretty easily - basically it assumes...
